One of the first nudist beaches to be recognized in Europe, it's a small cove with headlands at both ends with a steep descent from the road through trees so it's well hidden. There's a bar where you won't get served if you're clothed. No cameras allowed. Very quiet in December.

This is a nice beach surrounded by cliffs. There is a bar with music and karaoke, toilets are just around the corner. Recommended place for couples, singles as well as families. Just be careful: there are big and slippery rocks under the water and a lot of seaweed washes ashore.

Had heard of Benalnatura so decided to visit while staying at a local hotel. Wife is not interested in naturism so visited solo. Felt a little uneasy entering the beach but despite being quite busy with gay men and ladies, could see couples plus straight men and women singles. To be honest no one bothered anyone and everyone was very... More

Lovely beach and as described in previous posts it is pebbled from the waters edge into the sea, so take beach shoes with you. The bar is very reasonably priced and as cheap as anywhere else. The beach was absolutely ram jam full when I first visited on a Sunday afternoon, midweek it was quieter but still very busy in... More

A small naturist beach. We got there quite early on two days of our holiday having dropped our boys off at a dive shop. The beach fills up quite quickly. All sorts of people and nationalities. The beach was clean, tidy and stony as are most of the beaches in that area. There is a bar which also serves snacks,... More

Nice secluded beach in a small cove, well away from prying eyes for those that are worried about being seen in the buff.. 👀Having never gone naked before, I managed to convince my wife to do away with her bikini, just once to give it a go.. Having been a little reserved about being naked in 'public', she enjoyed it... More

Very quiet small beach in a cove. Secluded so private from anyone above trying to have a sneeky peek. Bit stoney in the sea and sea edge but beach at back sandy. This is a nudist beach and if you don't want to take your clothes off then please do not go down there as you will be the one... More

Everytime we visit Benalmadena, we spend 3 to 4 hours everyday on this Beach. So relaxing, an a lovely little bar. The food is beautiful, and really good value. 💖Love the Tuna Baguette 😀
